child abuse arrest

Faces a child abuse charge.

And, winchester police say the mom claims she doesn't remember anything from that day.

In tonight's top story at 6 abc 36's monica harkins is in the studio what what police say happened.

The 10 month old baby....had scalding hot chocolate poured on its head..police say.

The winchester sun reports the baby has serious burns to its head and face ...and at last report...was in serious condition at cincinnati children's hospital.

Investigators say 33-year-old ashley neal poured hot chocolate on the baby saturday afternoon in a fast food restaurant.

But the 'how' of the crime...gets a little confusing.

Neal says she didn't remember what happened...and neal's husband reportedly had his back turned at the time, according to police.

The arrest citation says, police looked over the surveillance video at this mcdonald's on southland drive to see for themselves what happened.

Officers say the video shows neal with the baby in a carrier against her chest and she is seen pouring a cup of hot chocolate on the baby's head...she then takes a few steps and attempts to fall, bracing herself with the same hand that poured the drink.

Police say neal was caring for two other foster children and two biological children.

All have been removed from her care.

Neal's bond was set at 25 hundred dollars cash.

She bailed out of jail on saturday, the same day as her arrest.
